490398 tn?1319940717 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
Avatar m tn I need to clarify my earlier post. Exercise does burn energy, and eventually exercise lowers blood glucose. When I mentioned "cardio level aerobic exercises" I meant this to be "rigorous" exercises. For example cardio aerobic, fast treadmill workouts, or even continuous pumping of weights. In a way, your liver "has a mind of its own" and continues to produce glucose while you exercise.
9470507 tn?1404220799 Hello All been feeling out of sorts, started seeing a new (better) doctor and per suggestions from others bought myself a glucose meter online to check my levels. Back on 6/5 in office blood tests showed non fasting Glucose levels at 56 (range 65-99), lab results from 6/26 Hemoglobin A1c 5.5 (range 4.8-5.6).
Avatar n tn It is an on-going battle between the two of us to get him to write down his sugar level and insulin when he checks. He is on a regimen of Lantus and Humalog and basically uses his own discretion when counting carbs and giving insulin. Does anyone have any suggestions on how we can better track his numbers, besides me following him around with a log book? He uses the Accu-Check Instant meter.
Avatar f tn Use your home meter to test your glucose levels. If you're having memory issues start a log - date/time/dose - so you have something to reference in the future.
Avatar n tn Also make sure to check you Preprandial and 2-4 postprandial daily. If eating this way does not help make sure you see a doctor and take your blood sugar log with you. Also make sure you check your blood sugar after certain foods so you can know what is triggering any high blood sugars.
Avatar n tn I'm a novice when it comes to diabetes so I could use some help. I'm on 2.5mg of Glipizide and have been for about four years. My doctor discourages blood glucose testings -- says that's only necessary if I were on insulin. However, I will occasionally check my blood sugar -- maybe once or twice a month or if I'm not feeling well. I checked it on Sunday and found it was running somewhat high.
Avatar f tn As far as the different readings, not all blood cell samples are alike because not all red blood cells carry, if any, the same amount, if any, of excess glucose. Take one reading at the times mentioned previously in #1 above. 4. An A1c tester is the most accurate test as it measures glucose over the past 2-3 months. Why? Quite simple, red blood cells live on average 2-3 months, excess glucose attaches to new RBC's and the A1c captures this.

Avatar m tn Start a written log of what you eat/drink and portion size, next to it your blood sugar levels. Test before you eat [preprandial] for a baseline measurement and then 2-3 hours after you finish your meal [postprandial]. You do have a home glucose test meter, right? By comparing preprandial with postprandial, postprandial will inform you which foods elevate your levels and which ones do not. You need to make a concentrated lifestyle change starting with foods.
Avatar n tn What do I do if my fasting or before meal blood glucose is above 130? Do I eat something anyway, or wait until my blood glucose drops below 130, or perhaps below 110? Sometimes my before meal number is 145-185, but I still feel hungry (happens usually if I have eaten a carb heavy meal the night before... I'm trying to stop doing that). Should I exercise before meals in an effort to bring my before-meal blood sugar down enough for it to be OK to eat something?
Avatar f tn A little background... at age 2 BG of 350+ put us in hospital for weekend. One more reading of 200. No meds, it normalized. Now she is 8 and says she wakes up feeling sick and dizzy. FBG are elevated. A1C is elevated, but not in diabetic range. After posting before about my daughters odd readings I started monitoring her BG closely. I wanted to arm myself with a week's log before seeing her pediatrician next week in hopes of getting referral to pediatric endocrinologist.
Avatar n tn probably Dawn Phenomenon, Your body getting ready for the day by releasing glucose into your blood. Unfortunately your body cant handle the glucose so your BG rises.
Avatar f tn The A1c provides an insight on your past 2-3 month glucose levels. Red blood cells live on average 2-3 months. Excess glucose rides on new red blood cells, the A1c captures this and provides an estimated three month daily average. " If a result such as 5.8% translates into an "average daily" value of 120 mg/dL, how can 5.8% be considered normal?" An A1c of 5.8% equates to an eAG [estimated daily Average Glucose] of 120 mg/dl, key word is estimated.
194838 tn?1303428544 Thankyou very much for the info, I am struggling a bit trying to control my blood glucose and hoping the Byetta my GP has recently started me on will help me.
Avatar f tn The conclusion reached is it did not help to lower glucose levels. Studies show it did help to regulate blood pressure besides its other antioxidant properties. Cinnamon is good but not in the way of lowering glucose. Vinegar is known to slow the absorption of sugar from foods entering the blood stream by as much as 20%. Key word is slow. If you can handle it try a couple of Tbsp after a meal. Salads with a dressing of vinegar and EVOO is another great way to get vinegar into your body.
Avatar n tn I think you shoud really see your endocrinologist, the sooner the better, they may suggest keeping a log of your blood sugars as well
Avatar n tn Did anyone here have any experience with the new mini med continous glucose system ? Do you guys think that it really works and is worth getting it ? I think the idea is great and would improve control greatly.
Avatar f tn MY glucola test is in a few weeks. As you may know, the protocol is to down a 50 gram glucose drink and then draw bloodwork. I'm very holistic and picky when coming to what I put in my body and instictively, it doesn't seem right to drown my body with 50 grams of glucose. I know many of you will not agree with me and say I should sacrifice for my baby and I know that. But are there any alternatives to this test? Such as just taking blood to test A1C?
